Short Roping (Scrambling) on Tryfan
The weather turned out to be just perfect for an Association of Mountaineering Instructors trainee workshop. The plan was to cover short roping with trainee candidates who are progressing through their Mountain Instructors Award qualification. We elected to go onto the east face of Tryfan and made an ascent of Bastow Buttress Variant (2/3) and then we descended North Gully and Little Gully (1/2). We had a constructive time and managed to have most of the crag to ourselves. The team consisted of (left to right) Pete, Steve and Matt.
